The Centre for Urban Ecology and Sustainability (CUES) envisages to address urban ecological issues with a view to offer solutions, and to develop a skilled cohort of professionals who actively engage in and find solutions for urban ecological challenges. The Centre would serve as a focal point where scientists, locals, government agencies and private consultants converge and participate in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of sustainable environmental projects in cities. The Centre will collaborate with Schools and other Centres in AUD on areas of common interest, and will build linkages with academic programmes within the University to provide opportunities to students to foster engaged scholarship. It is expected that its programmes will host interactions and dialogues on common themes with other Universities, government and civil society organisations in the city.
